There's something terribly depressing about international weekends. Obviously it's tough going when you're Irish but the added withdrawal symptoms from nearly two weeks devoid of Premier League makes it tough to bare.
Not to worry though, we can take to today to start preparing for next weekend. The first round of our BullorBear predictions league is half-way through and with €70 on the line I'll definitely be taking stock of how players have been performing for their countries, in the hope I'll spot a couple of players who'll be coming back to their club in form.
If you haven't created a league on BullorBear yet, you can do so here. Set the buy-in price, invite your friends to join and watch as the jackpot soars up. The winner at the end of the round (four gameweeks) will take the lot.
